Gawd, I hope not but it increasingly looks like it’s being left behind in technological dust. First came GrndR then Sruff and now jack’d. Manhunt does compete in the mobile pickup scene but it never seemed to get traction, at least not against the new upstarts.
Compete.com, a service that tracks website growth showed a staggering decline for Manhunt in the last year. From a high of 428,000 unique users in June 2011 to a low of 280,000 in November 2011. It’s been going up slightly every month since then but it really makes you think. How can the undisputed leader of online gay hookups lose so much market share?
Live by technology, die by technology, I guess. Hopefully, they can chart out a future for themselves; or rather for us. Because at the end of the day, we thrive when we’ve got more options.
